Balaclavas on the Beach

Beach fashion always seems to make headlines during the summer months, and every fashionable beach-goer knows your swimwear, no matter how conservative or revealing, needs to be up to date with the latest trends.  Though most of our car rental travelers will be focused on the latest skimpy suits that make cute little triangular tan-lines, take a look at a beach style that is making a buzz today.

I read about the Chinese Face-kini craze today on NPR, but the story has been picked up by blogs and news sites all over the internet in the past 12 hours.  It might seem strange if you are used to vacationing in the fashionable Baleric Islands, or renting a car hire in Malaga, but in some cultures fun in the sun would be more fun if it were a little less sunny.  That is to say, they obviously still enjoy the beach on a hot summer day, but due to social opinions about tan skin would prefer to avoid the sun's rays.

Balaclava and winter sport-style swimwear or not, there are several excellent beaches which will make great vacation spots this fall and winter.  Check out our list of Top Ten Beaches and make your car rental reservations today with  We keep our rates the lowest in the world's top destinations for summer fun and beach vacations year round.

What do you think about the Chinese Face-Kini craze?  Is it a good idea?  A viable alternative to sunblock?  Would you try it or put one on your children?  Let us know what you think of balaclavas at the beach in the comments section below.
